Liked: We loved the friendliness of the staff, helping us to find a great place for dinner, as well as providing great breakfast options: 1.5 Euro for toast and eggs! There were some other visitors and everyone was friendly and shared what they brought. I coulnd't believe what a great community they have there. Plus, we loved our room! So cozy! There is also a free common-use computer with internet, as well as free laundry services! Amazing!

Liked: I've enjoyed my stay there. The staff was really friendly and helpful - the advice for good music and food was excellent (thank you for that!). The location in the centre of Doolin was perfect to reach pubs, restaurants, shops and the port.

Disliked: there was no way to lock the door, everyone could have come into the room.
